Description

Security agent Christopher Kruse lost his wife and young daughter in the south of France. In Come Barbarians he investigated and stopped the people responsible for their deaths. He has remained in France working for the ambitious mayor of Paris, wandering streets haunted by his lost family and watching over a woman and her daughter. But when a charismatic politician is murdered by a grenade attack in the Jewish quarter, Kruse catapults back into the maelstrom of organized crime and dirty politics. A young woman named Zoe, working for a shadowy division of the French clandestine services, hires Kruse and his old colleague and mentor Tzvi to hunt down and assassinate the killer. The mission leads him not to redemption but down a rabbit hole of deception, violence and unlikely romance.

With edge-of-your seat action and crackling tension, Son of France is a non-stop political thriller and engrossing new novel from the #1 bestselling author Todd Babiak.

Editorial Reviews

“Come Barbarians is a heart-wrenching and heart-stopping thriller filled with powerful demonstrations of familial love as well as remarkable, chilling violence. Babiak masterfully negotiates these two extremes in this fast-paced, intelligent novel that had me white-knuckled until the last page.”

— Ivy Pochoda, author of <em>Visitation Street</em>

“Beautiful prose. . . . The book is cheaper than a trip to Paris and offers the thrills of hunting down terrorists without the real-life dangers.”

— <em>Publishers Weekly</em>

“Imagine the depth of feeling in Catcher in the Rye—but add terrorists. . . . A terrific and meaningful chapter in the life of Kruse.”

— <em>Edmonton Journal</em>

“With edge-of-your seat action and crackling tension, Son of France is a non-stop political thriller and engrossing new novel.”
